Jamie is a lifelong Pittsburgh resident with experience in working alongside vulnerable communities as a refugee resettlement caseworker and a direct care worker for young women in foster care to help families connect to necessary resources to help them succeed.
After 2 years in direct service work, she returned to the University of Pittsburgh to earn a dual master’s degree in Social Work and International Development; and become a licensed social worker in Pennsylvania.
Jamie is now the Economic Development Program Manager for the Mount Washington CDC working to bring affordable housing opportunities to low-and-moderate income families.
Our communities’ health directly impacts the health of our schools and our children’s success. She is running to represent Pittsburgh Public Schools District 7 to fight for a high quality and holistic public education that is equitable and meets the individual needs of all of our students.
Jamie lives with her partner, Geoffrey, their dogs Gracie, and Winnifred, and their bird, Louise. They are currently renovating Jamie’s childhood home in Carrick and hope to start a family of their own and are looking forward to sending their kids to Pittsburgh Public Schools.
